The billionaire oligarch who has taken all political sides since Ukraine’s independence outlined two priorities: restoring peace after months of Kremlin-backed war and restoring economic growth after months of recession.

Despite expressing a willingness to talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin and seek a peaceful resolution to the Kremlin-instigated war, Poroshenko vowed to more aggressively pursue the nation’s anti-terrorist operation to root out terrorists in the Donbas eastern oblasts of Donetsk and Luhansk.
